As I complete my tenure as the Chief of Naval Operations, I want to thank you for your inspiring efforts that ensured the Navy operated where it mattered, when it mattered – while laying the foundation of our future fleet. You are our greatest strength and asymmetric advantage. Families that support you are essential to our success.
Tomorrow I will be relieved by Admiral John Richardson, an exceptional leader. You are in excellent hands.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve you and serve with you, over the last four years. Darleen and I send our sincere wishes for happiness, safety and success to you and your families.
– Adm. Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations
Adm Greenert – Thank you for your leadership and commitment to our Navy. Sea Cadets from the Columbus Squadron wish you the best in retirement. Fair winds and Following Seas.
